Job culture
The City of Calgary is one of the highest paying municipalities in the country and offers many more benefits than cons.
Typical day at work was professional, yet casual. Safety and Diversity in the Workplace is strongly promoted. There was no dress code and in a professional environment I was allowed to take breaks when desired. There was no time keeper and as long as I was productive my work ethic was never questioned. My team leader was very knowledgeable and did not micro manage our department. Every one in my group was approachable and there was no requirement to follow a chain of command even though we have senior positions and coordinators. When I had ideas or a desire to take on new tasks, I would usually be granted my request if I could provide a use case and it did not impact the department. I was able to learn new skills by taking the initiative and approaching my team leader. The hardest part of the job was to work with others that I would deem unproductive. These type of workers are protected by the union and it is very difficult for management to take action. Therefore, all you can do is maintain a positive attitude and think of your contributions and not the lack of others. Thank goodness 99% of City of Calgary employees are respectful hard working individuals. I enjoyed coffee breaks with co-workers, organized city events, the freedom of my position, the ability to work four days a week, the option to work two days from home, and lots more.
Pros
Pension, flexible work hours, telework option, very competitive wages, compressed work week, apply/work in temporary City positions while retaining your base position.
Cons
Union environment protects unproductive workers
